  •  18 House Republicans is also ... (16+ / 0-)

    ... how many we need to sign a "discharge petition" to bring a clean funding resolution to the floor and end this nightmare.

    Have you signed our joint petition with Democracy for America and Campaign for America's future—which is at over 192,000 signatures so far? https://www.dailykos.com/...

    And if you live in one of 53 House Republican districts where your Congressmember has either (a) said they support a clean funding bill, (b) have constituents who picked Obama over Mitt Romney or (c) is vulnerable for re-election in 2014, you can email your Congressmember here: http://campaigns.dailykos.com/...

      that was exactly my thought too.

      It's also how many is needed to pass a clean bill.

      They are the sacrifices to the altar of craziness. The ones who will vote for at least the debt ceiling bill, and probably the clean CR that Boehner is going to 'compromise' about and bring to the floor.

      Then all the others can say THEY hung tough. THEY didn't give in. THEY weren't the ones who 'sold out'.

      It was those OTHER guys. The ones who would actually go and TALK to the nerds uncool ones President and the Dems. They were the ones who did mumblemumblemumble.

        They plan to default so there's no point to passing a clean CR.  They've gone off the deep end.  I just called one of my 2 GOP Reps (the real nutcase) and voiced my disapproval for continuing this shutdown.  My anger was obvious.  I wrote the other one last night.  I fear that they plan to keep us shut down for months, if not until the election, in order to completely destroy all of government except what they like.  This is their last chance to drown it and they know that.  Hold your breath because they're not going to let us up.

      fun if he had only invited the total wackadoodles (and you know that includes you Michelle) along with Boehner, Cantor, and Ryan (I know I'm being redundant).  Then he could tell them he sent Biden and some other crazy Democrats over to pick up the rest of the R caucus and whisk them off for a day of pampering and bonding in some tropical paradise.  Then Obama can put the wackadoodle bunch on some godforsaken exile island along with an immunity idol.  Wait...this sounds familiar.
